ANOKA, Minnesota – Federal Ammunition is proud to announce Minnesota-native Gregg Wolf as its newest sponsored shooter to join Team Federal.

Wolf started shooting competitively at the age of 9 and progressed to win several Junior World Championships. In 2004, he achieved his greatest accomplishment by becoming the first American and youngest person ever to win the World F.I.T.A.S.C. Championship in Signes, France. Other competition accolades throughout the decades include: 3-time National F.I.T.A.S.C. Champion, 17-time All-American, 12-time Team U.S.A. member, 2-time U.S. Grand Prix Champion, and more.

“In my state, Federal is THE ammunition. It is manufactured near me by hardworking people in Minnesota, and it has a worldwide reputation of high quality and reliability,” said Wolf. “I grew up shooting factory ammo and reloading with Federal components. I truly have a ton of trust and confidence in the company. I am excited and proud to be a part of my home-state team.”

“Gregg is one of the top sporting clays shooters in the nation, and he lives in Jordan, Minnesota which is just a short trek down the highway from our factory,” said Federal’s Vice President of Marketing Jason Nash. “We are excited to welcome him as the newest member of Team Federal, and we look forward to seeing some great things from him.”

Gregg and his family own a Ford Dealership in Minnesota in which he operates. In his free time, he loves to hunt and fish as frequently as he can with his wife and daughters.

“For me, Federal Gold Medal Papers are the holy grail. Nothing compares to their consistency and I especially love the smell of spent shells,” chuckled Wolf. “These loads smash clays yet are soft to shoot. There is no doubt in my mind that it will do its job when it arrives at the target.”

The look, feel and performance of Gold Medal Paper shotshells has made them the favorite of the most serious clay target shooters. The loads combine Federal Premium Ammunition's classic paper hull and high-quality brass head with an improved design that provides less felt recoil and improved shot hardness. Other features include: a two-piece wad utilizing SoftCell technology to decrease perceived recoil and produce uniform patterns; a quality brass head to ensure flawless cycling and extraction; and top-quality lead shot engineered for the optimum blend of hardness and density to deliver even patterns and maximum downrange power.

Federal is the official shotshell ammunition sponsor and supplier of USA Shooting, a non-profit organization that promotes the shooting sports and prepares American athletes to bring home gold. Federal is also a large supporter of the National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA), National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA), and many other national, regional and state shooting sports organizations.
